Israeli Stomp-style drum and dance sensation!
Tararam is a creative ensemble of performing artists who produce extraordinary sounds from ordinary objects. A blend of rhythm, music, movement, and wit, interwoven with choreographed body drumming, amusing sounds, and theatrical antics. Tararam uses industrial tools, suspended drums, percussion, and the most basic instrument of all: their bodies.
The group more than lives up to its name, which in Hebrew means “hubbub” or “commotion,” as it assaults your senses and awakens your natural impulse to tap your feet, clap your hands, and basically beat on anything and everything you find on the way out of the theater.
Since the group’s premiere performance at the 1997 Israel Festival of Stage Arts, Tararam has pursued an international touring schedule and performed at every major Israeli cultural event, including the Annual “International Birthright” Gala Events in Jerusalem, the Former Israeli Prime Minister Peres’ Birthday Event with Bill Clinton and numerous other world leaders, and the opening and closing ceremonies of Israel’s 2001 Maccabia Games. Other international performances include the World Exposition (Germany), the Performing Arts Festival in Costa Rica (summer 2004), the 2004 Annual General Assembly in Cleveland, Ohio, the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, and festivals such as the International Music Fest in Ankara, Turkey, Performing Arts Festival in Costa Rica, Summer Festival in Bogota, Colombia, Sibiu Theater Festival in Romania, Kulturfest NYC, Techfest in Mumbai, India, and other numerous International performances in Canada, Finland, Korea, Germany, and USA. In 2012, Tararam opened a successful performing arts school in Hod Hasharon, training youth in music, body drumming, theatre, and movement with prominent teachers in these genres. Recently, the group participated in high profile “TEDxTelAviv” Events.
